Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools so that schools can narrow the gap between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and advantaged backgrounds. The pupil premium funding received by the school is based on the number of children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Service Children and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

Your child may be eligible for free school meals – and accordingly pupil premium – if you receive any of the following benefits:

  • Income support
  • Income-based jobseekers’ allowance
  • Income-related employment and support allowance
  • Support under Part IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of state pension credit
  • Child tax credit, provided that you are not also entitled to working tax credit and have an annual gross income of £16,190 or less
  • Universal credit
